    Can't wait! That will replace my Bumper for sure.

    Would help to see/know a little more, even if it's just concepts.

    Buttons? (Yes; I do like the shiny bits on the Apple ones) - metal/rubber/hole
    Colours (more than 1? 2?)
    Thickness at, and available ports/openings...
    Price range?

    As is; it's not something I'm holding my breath for. C'mon; dangle a carrot..

    Here's a link to the iBand for the 3G/3GS. I think they only came in black or white. I would speculate the IP4 would also have cut outs for the controls and jacks. Click link below then click view more images.

    I'm also looking into this case and asked them about if they could make dock connector and headphone jack covers in d30 or if aftermarket ones would fit

    would be interesting if they make some with their case

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Tech21 and your interest in our revolutionary products.

    The iBand for the iPhone 4 will be available at the 30th of July.

    We are currently looking into expanding our protection range for the iPhone range, so the Jack/dock Connector protectors are certainly something that we are looking to get into.
    In the meantime, all of the links you have listed should fit.

    If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

    After that video, all I can say is forget the bumper. Thanks to everyone that's posted about this, it's just what I've been looking for.

    I really wish the 'preview' was more than the bottom corner of the case. Because that's so helpful.

    I think I'm sold. WOW!

    Since the old iBands were worth $30, I'm assuming the iP4 iBands are probably worth that much too. I'm going to bite the bullet on this one. That was awesome.

    The video for the "serious impact protection" is absolutely incredible. I love how the iPod touch bounces off the ground and still remained in good shape. I think I need this now. I love it!

    Precisely why I love the protection it offers. It's just ugly! LOL. :(

    The preview of the new version looks a lot less ugly IMO.

    I'm definitely waiting for this. I'm certain that the iPhone 4 is really the most fragile mobile device any manufacturer has created.

    http://gadgetynews.com/tech-21-bring-d3o-protection-for-iphone-4/

    Holding tight for the 30th, but as a UK company, they'll likely be hitting UK retailers first.

    http://www.tech21.uk.com/

    They've only got two US retailers, and one of them only sells to resellers.

    Yay for the link that shows all the colors, I want pink! i wish there was an option for white instead of black around the bezel, though, since I'm waiting on a white iPhone and I think that would look better.

    d3o is some great stuff. It looks really thick around the front though :/

    I love this case, I really do... but I think they could improve it by adding buttons like the bumper to keep dust and stuff out.

    Any updates on when this case will be arriving? I'm hoping it'll be "the one"!

    I will just wait until it comes out, or is it already out?

    It's not out yet, their site says "Available from August 2010" but no further details. I was wondering if anyone had heard anything more specific recently.
